    They gave him money. And said I choose whether to give.

    And that's the truth. We have to right to choose it. The government doesnt.

    Sounds likr many of the posters here were there "name one thing Obama is done". I swear, can they ever come up with an original argument/point that isn't so tired and old and repeated ad naseum?

    I especially like the guy who said "I can say what I want, whether its right or not, its america". Again, sounds like many posters here. "I believe what I want, who cares if its right or not"

    They didn't give him money, they threw a dollar at him, mocking him. They have no idea of this man's situation, not at all.

    Ask yourself Avatar, WWJD?

    You think he would of reacted like they did?

    You honestly can't say yes.

    That guy throwing the dollar bills at the guy should have both his wrists broken.

    The woman at the end? Put small businesses out of "work?" Really? Without having to offer an employer paid plan, small businesses will benefit most from increased ability to compete.

    Isn't it kind of odd to see people old enough to (and probably currently) benefit from SS and Medicare (that"socialist" program) bitching about others being able to visit the doctor instead of waiting until a condition is so advanced they have to 1) visit the ER, and/or 2) is too far gone to matter? I want those selfish fucks out there to BURN their benefit cards.

    How many people who protest against HCR (or any other consumer protection or public good) have stocks tied up in the industries they protest for? That would at least be a somewhat rational (if short-sighted and tunnel-visioned) self interest. The ones without a 401k, or equivalent, and no stock portfolio are organized and led by those who do. SCREAMING against their own economic and social interests. Holy shit. are Americans THIS stupid?

    Cowshit and gunsmoke by people who benefit most from the systems they protest against.
    They're either dishonest or stupid. I'll accept either explanation, but it really does have to be one or the other.

    Its the "I've got mine" mentality. I have health insurance (for now at least) and I will fight to the death to prevent others from getting it. (If others get it, that means I will get less)

    Interesting. I particularly liked the comments of 'everyone has the right to affordable healthcare' - which I agree with. That comment was from a pro the bill person. I also agreed with 'we don't want this bill rammed down our throats'. From the anti bill side.

    Also, I see the SEIU was out in force at the event. Call me a cynic, but anytime the SEIU show up, I smell an orchestrated confrontation.
